I preferred Klinger wearing dresses as opposed to uniforms.

Filthy buggers. Should have been exterminated years ago.

Aziz Ansari Is Guilty. Of Not Being a Mind Reader. by Eurynom0s in television

[–]Swankishesque 611 points612 points  (0 children)

I thought you were joking until I read her story.

When Ansari told her he was going to grab a condom within minutes of their first kiss, Grace voiced her hesitation explicitly. “I said something like, ‘Whoa, let’s relax for a sec, let’s chill.’” She says he then resumed kissing her, briefly performed oral sex on her, and asked her to do the same thing to him. She did, but not for long. “It was really quick. Everything was pretty much touched and done within ten minutes of hooking up, except for actual sex.”

In your opinion, is Peoria growing or decaying? by max1674 in PeoriaIL

[–]Swankishesque 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I don't agree with the third world comparison. Even the worst parts of Peoria... hell, this area in general, e.g. Pekin, Creve Coeur, E. Peoria, isn't any where near third world status.

The music is the theme to a tv show from the early 80s called "The Greatest American Hero.

Anybody else receive a recruitment letter from the International Keystone Knights? by goo-goo-gajoob in PeoriaIL

[–]Swankishesque 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Could have. I rarely open anything addressed to "Resident" or "Current Resident". That shit goes straight in the trash.

Ah... the memories of Midtown Plaza. And from what I hear, the new hotel isn't doing so well, either.

more expansions means an increase in population

Ideally. First, though, you need something, i.e. employers, to get people to want to live here. That used to be Cat, but it's future in Peoria seems to be shaky. If Cat goes, you can bet the OSF jobs will slowly recede from the area.

This part is all anecdotal but I think a reason it may seem concrete cracks more in modern construction is because contractors absolutely love adding water to concrete.

Not sure about commercial standards, but I did residential foundation/poured concrete work for 13 years and this is very true. Pump truck operators would always add way more water than needed to ensure that the pump wouldn't plug during the pour and to avoid honeycombing in the concrete.

[serious discussion] You're now King/Queen of Illinois with absolute authority. How do you fix the state finances? by fojiaotu in illinois

[–]Swankishesque 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Another benefit of legalization.

Financial gain aside, there is another pressing reason for legalizing recreational cannabis in the state of Illinois. In 2016, state lawmakers decriminalized weed. So currently, if a police officer discovers that you are in possession of the herb, you will only need to pay a fine of $100-$200. That is if you only had under 10 grams at the time of the arrest.

But the problem with that is that those who pay a fine for weed possession will still have an arrest record. An arrest record for drug possession, even if the drug is cannabis, will follow you. It can—and often does—negatively impact your job prospects and chances of getting a loan. Additionally, the current system congests the courts and wastes the time and resources of police officers and court officials, who could be using that time to prevent and prosecute violent crime.

This is proof that the moon landings were fake. How could he be on the moon and making pizza in his kitchen on Earth at the same time?

Hmmm? Hmmm?

Legendary Musician Eric Clapton Reveals He Is Going Deaf by Swankishesque in Music

I hate the term 'idolize'. That's putting someone/thing on a pedestal where it shouldn't be in the first place. Musicians are just people; they're not deities to be worshiped. It's fine to admire a person for their art/work, but it's important to be able to separate that from the individual who makes it.
